Kilruane Camogie News

Junior
Well done to our Junior team who hurled to the bitter end in the County semi-final last Sunday. With the match finishing 1-3 to both teams, they must battle it out again this weekend. Fixture to be confirmed so please check with one of the panel before travelling to support us. As one would expect playing on the last Sunday in November conditions for camogie were far from ideal. With low temperatures and rain pouring down throughout the game on an already waterlogged field, both sets of players should be commended for their performances, not just for 60 minutes but for the 20 minutes extra time that had to be played. Kilruane looked sharp from the off and had the Holycross backs under pressure, but yet struggled to get the scores they needed. Kilruane’s goal was the first score registered, when Claire Kennedy whipped a ground ball to the net after good work from Louise Hogan. Maria Hogan added a point, to leave the half time scores at 1-1 each, the Holycross scores coming from placed balls. Kilruane introducted 2 subs at half time. The second half was a close contest, with scores hard to come by, each team just registering 1 point each. Thus extra time was needed to try to separate the 2 sides. Again both teams raised 1 white flag each during this period. Well done to all involved and best wishes in the replay.
